I have always been your friend even though you are a Southender.

Glad to see your family has moved out of the "Wilson Beach Encrochment"

What a great site.

Love your photos & I have sent the link off to brother Hank.

Sure hope you are doing OK.

Thanks again for all the help and training you gave me at City Hall.

Hi Helen

Your message limits cut me short on word limits. My family lived in Robbinston from 1786-1974 and have strong connections to Charlotte CO. I grew up there and learned the history and family trees for over 50 years. I will be a silent member unless I can make a contribution.

Any relation to Donna Archer? I remember her from Calais HS in 60's from Charlotte or Meddybemps.

Thank you, Helen, for letting me browse your family tree! I'm looking forward studying it and seeing if we have more ancestors in common.

Hi Helen, I am related to Margaret Beinert through Wealthy Chase who married Jonathan Stickney and your ancestor Eleanor Stickney (their daughter) who married Bela Loring is the sister of our relative, Hannah Stickney who married Robert Patterson. There is a book on the Stickney Genealogy online:
FROM 1637 to 1869
By Matthew Adams Stickney
Published for the author by Salem Institute Press, Salem, Massachusetts, USA, 1869
Found at the following website:
It is a big book to search through so I cut and pasted files from it that I have made into word documents showing the line. Eleanor and Hannah and their sister Susan are all buried in the same cemetery in Perry, Location #11 in Jeanne O'Shae's book "At Rest", Loring Cemetery, Kaler property, Shore Rd. The URL is I will also copy and paste that information . We visited that cemetery in 2000. We are at a brick wall with Alexander Patterson, father of Robert. If anyone has any information on him we would greatly appreciate any help.

Copy and pastes will be added in other comment boxes because they exceed the limit.
